Something very special for Lapua happened on 5.8. in Münich when Lapua´s most new born - 6,5x47 Lapua - showed its performance in 300 m Prone men elimination competition. French shooting star Mr Josselin Henry shot 600/600, EWR = Equalling World Record !!! That record has also been shot by Mr Harald Stenvaag, NOR in 1990, Mr Bernd Rücker, GER in 1994 and Mr Vebjörn Berg NOR in 2010.

This time the record shooting was very distinguished because Josselin shot it with the factory loaded 4316011 6,5x47 Lapua GB489 8,0 g / 123 gr. HPBT SCENAR rounds... and without any test shooting or lot selection!!!

More news and results from Münich when all disiplines will be held and the games are over.
